“The new Klaus Flugge Prize celebrates the most exciting new illustrators in picture books – and the shortlist does not disappoint.” – BookTrust
We are extremely excited to share that Joe Lillington, one of our newest recruits, has been shortlisted for the Klaus Flugge Award with Toby and the Ice Giants. The six books were chosen by Chris Riddell Children’s Laureate, and Tony Ross, two incredible illustrators in their own right.
Toby is an exciting narrative yet also a fun and factual book about a young bison named Toby who goes on adventure around the Ice Age tundra. This was Joe’s first book for Flying Eye, and his second Neffy and the Feathered Dinosaurs, is out now.
Neffy is based on the new evidence that more dinosaurs had feathers than we ever realised, follow Neffy to new heights whizzing around the forest and see who she encounters along the way!
